Police Chiefs’ Association
of Bucks County
The Police Chiefs’ Association of Bucks County was organized in 1952. The Association’s goal was to foster and facilitate cooperation, partnerships, and professionalism among the law enforcement executives and agencies throughout Bucks County and their professional peers throughout the State of Pennsylvania. The Association has promoted progressive policing philosophies and professional standards designed to prevent and detect criminal activity and the identification, apprehension, and treatment of offenders in order to better serve and protect the citizenry of Bucks County.
In order to meet these goals, the Association sponsors training for both police executives and law enforcement personnel of all ranks.
The Association conducts fundraising events throughout the year to support its mission, including fundraising by professional telemarketing firms.
Although our neighborhoods and technology have changed dramatically since the Association’s foundation, its commitment to our members, community, and goals have remained steadfast.
The Association would like to thank the residents and corporate supporters for their continued patronage. That support enables the Association to continue its mission and provide high-quality training and educational opportunities to the current and future law enforcement leaders of Bucks County.
